Gerontology @ Genesee
The certificate combines introductory human services coursework with specific gerontology courses. Gerontology courses cover issues related to growing older, needs of the aging and the resources available to this age group.
Students develop skills in building relationships, problem solving and planning, and implementing recreational activities to encourage and promote good health. A field experience offers gerontology certificate students a hands-on opportunity to sharpen skills learned in the classroom.
Upon successfully completing the certificate program, students may transfer credits into the Human Services degree program or may complete the certificate concurrent with enrollment in the HUS Program.
